“ok stay”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

By no means luxurious, but with a last minute holiday booking in Asheville it was an easy option. Fairly convenient to downtown Asheville (about 20 mins) and the Biltmore Estate (also 20 mins). Nice lobby area with nice front desk staff member. The rooms are old and not particularly aesthetically appealing. The sheets appeared clean but the overlying blanket was dirty. The super weird thing was that the coffee maker was in the bathroom, next to the toilet, instead of in the bedroom area (the ideal place would have been above the fridge). Parking was easy. It was pretty quiet overall. The continental breakfast was ok. For $134 it was definitely overpriced.

My wife and I decided to stay at this Holiday Inn Express for our one-year anniversary and we were very pleased with the accomodations. Various members of the staff were pleasant and easy to work with. They fulfilled a floor request with no problem, and we were greeted with a smile and a warm welcome.

The Continental Breakfast was absolutely wonderful. I agree with others who think that your cinnamon rolls are fantastic.

The hotel was in a wonderful location, just minutes from the Biltmore House and from downtown Asheville. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will likely stay at this property if we are back in Asheville. Thanks so much!

Room Tip: Odd-numbered rooms will have the better view, but even-numbered rooms were more than adequate.

This was out first Holiday Inn Express visit and we both were impressed. Check-in was a breeze and the staff was very friendly, especially, the late night desk clerk, Charles. The place was so clean, it was like staying at a brand new hotel. Price was well within boundaries of this market area and we felt like we got the best bang for our buck. After this visit, we will make a point at staying at another Holiday Inn Express. Did I mention the staff being friendly and professional?

When I booked I requested 2 queen beds. When my husband, teenage daughter and myself walked into the room it was a king. Manager told us since we booked through third party, Hotwire, that we couldn't be guaranteed what we would get. However, he understood our need for comfort and after a 10 minute wait, he accommodated us with a nice room with 2 queen beds. The toiletries are Bath and Body Works, shower is terrific and there's a microwave and frig. Great value, walk to ALL...supermarket and good chain restaurants.

Our hotel always takes that extra step to accommodate our guests. Most third party bookings do not guarantee bed type and that doesn't work sometimes. I am glad you had a wonderful time at our hotel and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Warmest regards, Ellen Pettigrew, Manager

Super great location, pretty much a 10 minute drive or less to wherever you need to go. Super clean hotel, super spotless room. Great size room, large bathroom. Very comfy bed. The breakfast area was spotless and so convenient! Food was great! There was a soda and ice machine near the elevator on our floor. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. They even have pre-printed directions to the Biltmore that they are more than happy to give you! I will stay here again and definitely recommend this hotel to friends & family!

Once ad at this very nice hotel. We were only there 2 nights, and were treated excellent.
The room was clean, they were very flexible with check in and checking out. We will always look there first when visiting Aseville

We stayed two nights at this motel. It was conveniently located right off the interstate. Easy drive to downtown or to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The room showed a little wear and tear, but it was very clean. Staff at the front desk were very friendly. Breakfast was normal Holiday Inn fare. Not great, but free!
